    I was very inspired by fellow Tfw member's Sentinel Prime version of this custom seen here (http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/579227-soundwave-fusion-classics-dotm.html) which fused the rts jazz mold with some WFC soundwave components to bring a pseudo Dotm classics hybrid, I fell in love, so I decided to take this awesome custom for a spin but add a cartoon G1 touch to the mix, needless to say I think this is as far fetched as soundwave can get, especially when I took some liberties to give him a more cartoony look, like the most obvious one being his chest plate, I know it's a bit of a stretch to have it incorporated(especially in alt mode) but I felt it necessary to be there since the chest plate is iconic in regards to soundwave, so i decided to roll with it, I modified the peg on his shoulder cannon to position itself in the middle of the wheel via a small but powerful magnet that connects to the wheel pin, I still plan on adding more pics with ravage(bts version) and the door speakers once they are done. Hope you guys like. :)

    The paint job is amazing, and the toy looks really good.

    Although I am having trouble wrapping my head around soundwave as a car..
    But.. seriously brilliant work (even if the alt mode is not for me!)

    VERY nice paint work. He looks like he is straight out of a comic.

    The paint looks good as always, but I am trying to understand the cell shading on this one. Is it done with a specific pattern in mind, or is it random?

    This is very impressive!

    This mold works so well for Soundwave!

    How did you go manage to attach the gun barral on Soundwave's shoulder?

    The whole thing looks great, I especially think these forearms evoke Soundwave for some reason. This makes me really want to see a stop motion clip with these cell shaded figures.
